NHIS - Injury and Poisoning Information

Guide for Data Users

This guide provides links to NHIS injury and poisoning information, including questionnaires, documentation, data file information, SAS/SPSS/Stata input statements, and data sets for each data year in which NHIS injury and poisoning questions were asked.

NHIS data collection technology has changed over the years with resulting changes in terminology and the display of survey information. Terminology used on the NHIS website for the three major NHIS data collection periods - 2004 to present, 1997-2003, and 1963-1996 - is summarized here.  No NHIS microdata files are available for 1957 through 1962: only questionnaires and some reports from this period exist.

*The questionnaire for the 1968 Motor vehicle accident supplement is found in the Series 1 no. 11 report (Health Interview Survey Procedure 1957-1974); examples of the core condition questionnaires pertaining to accidents and injuries from 1957 though 1974 are also found there.

Not covered directly here are numerous supplements that included questions on preventing various types of injuries.  These supplements are identified in the section of this report showing questions on preventing injuries.

** Stata input statements were first provided for the 2002 data year.

 

2004 to present

1963-1996

For 1963-1996, survey information is organized by data year in descending order.  References to the injury supplements in these years follow the information on the core condition files.  Links to most documents for these years are provided below.  All NHIS survey information for this period can also be accessed from the page titled Internet-Available Datasets and Related Documentation 1996-Prior.  Note that, unlike later years, core questionnaires are located in appendix III of Current Estimates reports for 1963-1996.  These reports are large and may take some time to download.  The directions below are primarily for the NHIS core; the data files and questionnaires pertaining to injuries are the condition portion of the overall core.

1957-1962

No NHIS microdata files are available for 1957 through 1962.  Only questionnaires and some reports exist from this period.  Examples of the core condition questionnaires pertaining to accidents and injuries from 1957 though 1974 are found in selected Series 1 reports.

Copies of the questions in these early years still exist and are included in the Injury and Poisoning Questions section of this report.  In addition, there are reports (NCHS Publications Series B and C reports) that focus on injury related data from these early years such as: numbers of persons injured, persons injured by class of accident, and persons injured in motor-vehicle accidents and associated disability.
